About project

Cambridge Measured Survey was commissioned to provide detailed drawings and plans of the current chapel of Corpus Christi College in Cambridge. The chapel, designed by William Wilkins, was completed in 1827 and is the third chapel the college has had. The client’s requirements included a reflected ceiling plan with enhanced details, floor plans, architectural elevations, and sectional elevation drawings. The majority of the detail was to be drafted at a scale of 1:50. At the same time, the main roof beam and adjacent area required a higher level of detail at a scale of 1:20. Our measured survey company delivered accurate and detailed drawings that met the client’s specifications providing a high-quality service.

3D Laser Scanning to produce detailed 2D CAD Drawings

All topographic survey data can be produced in the form of as built 2D drawings, which are scaled and detailed to display all-natural and manmade features, levels and boundaries.

3D laser scanning is a technology that uses laser beams to measure and capture the dimensions and geometry of objects and spaces. Our surveyors use the RTC360 to capture data in the utmost accuracy. The 3D laser scanner creates a dense point cloud data set, representing the object or space in 3D. The data set is then processed and converted into a 2D CAD drawing, allowing for detailed plans and elevations to be produced.

One of the key benefits of 3D laser scanning is its ability to capture highly accurate measurements. The laser scanner can measure points within a few millimetres, resulting in precise data that can be used to create detailed drawings and plans. The level of accuracy is particularly valuable in complex projects where precision is essential.

Another advantage of 3D laser scanning is its speed and efficiency. Traditional surveying methods can be time-consuming and require multiple visits to a site. With 3D laser scanning, a single scan can capture a large amount of data quickly and accurately. This reduces the need for multiple site visits and can help to speed up the project timeline.

3D laser scanning also can capture data in hard-to-reach areas, which is particularly useful in complex structures or areas where access is restricted. The laser scanner can capture data from multiple angles, allowing for a complete representation of the object or space.

Different scales are used for 2D Drawings.

Different scales are used for 2D drawings depending on the size of the space being represented and the level of detail required. The most common scales used for 2D drawings are:

  • 1:1 scale – This scale represents the object or space at its actual size. It is often used for details or small components.
  • 1:2 scale – This scale represents the object or space at half its actual size. It is often used for larger details or components.
  • 1:5 scale – This scale represents the object or space at one-fifth of its actual size. It is often used for small rooms or spaces.
  • 1:10 scale – This scale represents the object or space at one-tenth of its actual size. It is often used for larger rooms or spaces.
  • 1:20 scale – This scale represents the object or space at one-twentieth its actual size. It is often used for building floor plans or elevations.
  • 1:50 scale – This scale represents the object or space at one-fiftieth its actual size. It is often used for site plans, building plans, and architectural drawings.
  • 1:100 scale – This scale represents the object or space at one-hundredth its actual size. It is often used for larger site plans or master plans.

These are just some of the most common scales used for 2D drawings, and the specific scale used will depend on the project’s requirements.
